Antarctica: A Year On IceThis feature-length film reveals what it is like to live and work at the bottom of the planet, in Antarctica, for a full year. The story is not from the point of view of scientists, but of the people who spend the most time there; the everyday workers who keep the stations running in the harshest place on the planet. Filmed over 15 years by Frozen Planet photographer Anthony Powell, the film features a unique insiders point of view, with unparalleled access, and never before seen stunning footage of the deep Antarctic winters.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Antarctica: A Year On Ice"San Diego ReaderDecember 12, 2014
Way too much screen time is given over to folks describing what it's like to live in such a place, as opposed to, you know, actually living there.Boston GlobeDecember 04, 2014
"Antarctica" ultimately does evoke a sense of the place - its magnificent emptiness and inhuman, unspoiled purity.Washington PostDecember 04, 2014
It is the simple glimpses of ordinary life in an extraordinary place that are the most stirring moments in the film.Chicago ReaderDecember 04, 2014
Powell makes excellent use of time-lapse photography to capture such natural phenomena as a sea freezing over. What registers most strongly, though, is the sense of loneliness and professional drudgery.Philadelphia InquirerNovember 28, 2014
Mostly what you get is a chronicle of tedious routine carried out in a killing climate. That gives this documentary a flavor that is strong and genuine. Just not very appealing.Seattle TimesNovember 28, 2014
A documentary that's essentially a tribute to a hardy group of people who've made a life on the ice.Epoch TimesJune 13, 2016
Technically, it is far superior to an average installment of PBS's Nature, but it has the same general niceness and similar tacked-on messages.Movie ChambersApril 17, 2015
Under incredibly harsh conditions, Powell captures the outstanding beauty of the ice, the active volcano near McMurdo, the wildlife, the ice-cold water and the amazing night sky with stars so bright, it's almost blinding.Madison MovieFebruary 20, 2015
If nothing else, watching the documentary "Antarctica: A Year on Ice" makes a Wisconsin February go down a little easierEast Bay ExpressJanuary 23, 2015
You'll want to wear a sweater to the theater.Common Sense MediaDecember 12, 2014
Powell doesn't let tiny details slip by.San Diego Union-TribuneDecember 11, 2014
The movie shows precisely what the title suggests: the changing seasons in that desolate place, and the folks who decide to endure them.
